We share pillows, We share covers, We share thoughts, About possible feelings for each other. I assume the position as your partner, If only for that moment… It was a feeling I could never forget. I listen intently as you release, As you let out your inner most, Whispering so that only I hear. I still question though, If those words drenched in sweet, That you speak display your heart revealed, Or are you speaking out of your fatigue? I whisper one more line, But there isn’t a response this time. I look over and behold your visage, Eyes that once smiled at me, Closed ever so gently. Silent now are your lips, Inviting mine to lightly, Kiss them good nightly. I wait awhile before I take my flight, From my spot I quietly slither away, The same spot that you will find empty, When you roll over upon the coming day.
